Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 7 - 8. Midlateral stripe with indiscrete limits. Dark chromatophores scattered all over the body, especially longitudinally, thus forming an irregular and discontinuous stripe at pectoral fin insertion level, extending beyond origin of pelvic fin, sometimes reaching the anal fin (Ref. 47883).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00525 (0.00220 - 0.01254), b=3.11 (2.90 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 2.6 ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (25 of 100) .
